Broad construction of detrimental treatment

This report relates to 1 case(s)

The Court of Appeal in Garry v London Borough of Ealing has found that a black employee was subjected to a "detriment" within the meaning of s.4(2)(c) of the Race Relations Act when, for reasons connected with her ethnic origin, an investigation by her employers into her activities was continued longer than an ordinary investigation would have been. The Court of Appeal ruled that the employee suffered a "detriment" in such circumstances, even though she was unaware that the investigation was continuing.
